When the clock starts, you will do 5 burpees and thrusters the remainder of that minute. Then 5 burpees on the minute every minute. The goal is to get to 100 thrusters. You may decide that you want to rest and not do any thrusters. This is fine, but you must do the burpees at the start of every minute. Ways to scale include reducing the amount of burpees to 2 or 3, plus scaling the weight. The thruster should be moderately heavy (i.e. not easy or light) This is a very mentally tough workout to stick with, but remember that it’s a Hero WOD! Time cap is 35 minutes.

For time:
100 thrusters, 135/95#

EMOM 5 burpees

time cap: 35 minutes
